nobuhiro nakanishi - layer drawing cloud/fog, 2005Layer Drawing Cloud/Fog, 2005 by Nobuhiro Nakanishi

"In a foggy landscape, we no longer see what we are usually able to see – the distance to the traffic light, the silhouette of the trees, the slope of the ground. Silhouettes, distance and horizontal sense all become vague. When we perceive this vagueness, the water inside the retina and skin dissolve outwardly toward the infinite space of the body surface. The landscape continues to flow, withholding us from grasping anything solid." (more)
